Can I please get a bias-free summary of what is happening with Benghazi right now? I thought this thing was over.

>Imperialists imperialise Libya
>Imperialists get buttimperialised when their embassy is attacked
>Imperialists blame other imperialists in a shitty two-party system because half of the imperialists are still buttimperialised about Obama

Oh, you said bias-free. Sorry.

I honestly just wanted to use 'buttimperialised' a few times.

And that is why you shouldn't get involved in countries that function perfectly fine.

Eh, I wouldn't say Libya was fine. But the intervention was shitty, and the 'support for a popular uprising against tyranny' or whatever the fuck was simply a cover for an economic agenda.

It was a lot better off before that's for certain, all this gold dinar probably upset murrica enough, it's funny they've pretty much degenerated back to warring tribes level, all because they believed some stupid notions of liberty.

Terrorists attacked a US embassy and killed 4 Americans including the ambassador. Not much else to say about the actual attack; it's the political war that's significant.

The Obama ad.ministration screwed up then lied about to make themselves look better. The republicans found out and are using it to try and knock Hillary Clinton out of the presidential race of 2016 because she'd probably win the democratic primaries.

The bureaucrats in the state department dismissed the act as a disorderly protest against a movie, (The Innocence of Muslims) which is shown by them having edited the talking points for Benghazi via email to erase any mention of terrorism. Of course, that movie was a non-issue in Libya, despite its offensive portrayal of Islam by a Jewish director. After the attack, at great risk to his own life, the Libyan President went to Benghazi to affirm that it was indeed a terrorist attack, although Rice would have none of it and insulted him on the national stage. This helped the election of Obama because it prevented immediate controversy. Mitt Romney was unable to bring up the attack in the last debate because of how it was portrayed as being void of organized terrorism.

They lied about not being able to send military personal to Benghazi, which would have been able to get there in 3 hours from mainland Europe at command; the attack lasted 6-8 hours or so. Fundamentally, they did nothing as the consulat was under attack. Obama, when he heard of what was transpiring, did not take interest and instead told his cabinet to head operations, which is now known (despite the fact that the White House released a supposed photo of Obama reacting to the attack by sitting on a couch with a frown). The next day he went to Las Vegas for a campaign fundraiser.

I haven't been following the issue, but I thought there were actual protests against the movie which happened to coincide with the terrorist attack on the embassy. Am I wrong?

Apparently it came out of somebody's ass. Hicks, deputy chief of mission in Libya during the attacks, testified less than a week ago that the video was a non-issue in Libya.

Hicks, who had a demotion in ranking, claims that the Obama DJ 4DM1Nistration is punishing him for whistleblowing.
